Camellia Seedlings in Bloom

A member on the Camellia Group to which I belong on Facebook asked that members post not just a beautiful Camellia blossom but the bush on which it grows to give a better idea of the structure of that plant when out of bloom.

This is one of my seedlings.

The blossom above grows on this plant.
Yellow leaves are not abnormal, old leaves are shed as new growth starts.
The same plant again on the left.
On the right  is the shrub on which the bloom below grows.
Compare the color of the two plants. They are the same age.

This seedling is unlike either of the pod parents.
